Gil Shaham, violin

The Austin Symphony is excited to present one of the greatest living violinists of our time, Gil Shaham. Mr. Shaham will perform Korngold’s exciting Violin Concerto in D Major. Also that evening the Austin Symphony will perform Franz Liszt’s Les Préludes and conclude with Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7 in D Minor.

You don’t want to miss Mr. Shaham play on his rare 1699 “Countess Polignac” Stradivarius.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to play a violin? Come to the mezzanine level and do some hands-on learning. Representatives from Violins Etc. will be giving quick lessons on how to play before the performance and during intermission.
